Rainforest Foundation UK

Actor Type 

The Rainforest Foundation UK aims to help indigenous peoples and forest communities around the world gain the land and resource rights they deserve, and in the process reduce deforestation activities such as illegal logging and palm oil production. The foundation works with local partners on issues related to  land and resource rights, and on threats to forests and forest communities. They offer legal support, and their projects include mapping community lands for improved governance and promotion of rights; improving community livelihoods;  reducing the negative impacts on forest communities of industrial palm oil plantations; and building legal capacities to support the rights of forest communities.
